Dear Ms. Stachnik,
Thank you for posting your request to History Hub!
There a number of resources here in St. Louis that we can use to research your uncle’s time in service. First, the information you have is enough to search through the Morning Reports. It’s best to begin with the date of an event (like an injury or separation of service) and work backwards in time to track their movement and actions.
We can also help you search the Daily Sick Reports/Books, US Army 1917 - 1953 and Army Air Force/Air Force 1917 - 1951 while you are here. They typically contain name, rank, date of event, and if they were hospitalized. We recommend searching the National Archives Access to Archival Database to gather more information on members who served in the Army during WWII. You may be able to find a service number that will help in finding any auxiliary files we may have for him.
We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your research.
Ms Rivet, thank you very much for the reply. I already have an appointment for the Archives. The morning reports are going to be my first search, so I wanted to make sure I had enough information to start. Also would like to search the Daily Sick Reports/Books for information on my dad's service as well. Thank you, joan
